Car needs checked with Tech 3 or equivalent for fault codes . Some " fault finder analizer computor " are useless . Possibly engine coolant temp sensor or TPS ( throttle position sensor ) Could check plug / connector at accelerator pedal and throttle body . They normally would throw a code but not always .
